One Letterman Drive, Presidio
Status: Certified Open
Today man of Meadowood and Cavallo Point Michelin-starred legend, Joseph Humphrey officially unswaddles his new baby, Dixie, for all to behold in the Presidio. The menu fronts highly elevated renditions of classic Southern dishes, like chicken and dumplings rendered with Marin Sun Farms poultry and ricotta gnudi. There are five sections in total: bar snacks, oysters, starters, entrees and desserts, plus the option of an interactive tasting menu where the final dessert course is served at a chef's table inside the kitchen. A bar area, large outdoor patio, and oodles of white and brown leather booths in cozy nooks provide about 200 seats for digging in. Walk-ins are welcome.
Hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Website.
